Educator, Leader, and Community Partner
Dear Neighbors, Family, and Friends,
After deep consideration, I am thrilled to announce my candidacy for Colorado State House of Representatives District 7.
As an African American woman, I recognized from an early age my duty to fight for the success of young people despite their zip code, skin color, or aspirations in life. Because of this, I sought to educate in the classroom, build power with students and families as a community organizer, and partner with neighbors as a school board member.
Through serving on the Denver Public School Board, I have learned how to successfully govern towards our shared goals while demonstrating a style of leadership that collaborates with students, families and neighbors and listens to their needs and concerns in order to solve real issues.
I have seen first hand how state-level policies impact northeast Denver families both in and outside of the classroom. From education funding, to wage security and affordable housing, the State House is where the root of many of these issues can be solved.
In recently vacating his seat to run for State Senate, many of my community members including Representative Coleman have identified State House District 7 as an opportunity for me to serve as your leader, continuing to advocate for our values and tackle our district’s most pressing issues.
I want to thank all of those who have reached out to me, encouraged me, and made me who I am today: a strong advocate and your partner.
I look forward to working with you on this next journey.
